Perusing my account on-line last night, I noticed that £650 had disappeared out of my account. It was there on Friday, but not there on Sunday. Thinking I knew the reason I phoned the bank this morning and was told that because my mortgage was due to be paid today, i.e. the first of September, the money had been "set aside". So I asked if that had brought my account to nil and I had gone out on Saturday or Sunday and spent on a card, would my account then have been in overdraft. Yes, I was told, it was because it was a Bank Holiday. But not a Bank Holiday in Scotland, I told them. (QUICK ON THE REPARTEE)! Ah, I was told "we are taking it anyway"!
So bear with me. If the Clydesdale Bank has say 2 million customers and 10% of them are in the same situation as me and the Clydesdale can make 5% annual interest on the money market, then they are thieving £75,000 plus from their punters.
WHERE'S THAT GOING BANKERS, INTO YOUR FUCKING BONUSES?
